Remember in elementary school when you liked someone and (yes!) they liked you too? Maybe your friends arranged it or you passed a note and then suddenly, you were dating. It was magical. And then we grew up and things got complicated.
Mr. Librarian and I have been going out for almost two months, and things are still going really well. Last weekend he even saw a flash of irritable me, which led him to say that I give more “looks” than any person he has ever met. I have decided to see this in a positive (and true) light. We are still learning things about each other and are moving slow because we only get to see each other once a week. Friends have started asking me when we’re going to have “the talk,” and the truth is, I don’t know. I want it to happen organically, but I’m not hopeful. And what if it’s too soon? How do you even broach the subject? It feels so strange to just bring it up out of the blue.
Any advice? When do you have “the talk” as an adult? How do you begin?
